Support » Plugin: Hide My WP Ghost - Security Plugin » wp-admin accessible if logged in

    Hello there,

    I’d like wp-admin not to be accessible whether you’re logged in or logged out, I just want the dashboard to be accessible using the new custom link “i.e. dashboard”.

    Your plugin blocks wp-admin and refers to 404 if logged out, but if you’re logged in you can still access wp-admin using either “dashboard” or the old “wp-admin”.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    We don’t hide the wp-admin URLs from the dashboard once you’re logged in as Administrator. This will assure you’re not get locked out from your website once you deactivate the plugin.

    Hello again,

    First of all thank you so much for the great plugin, I completely understand your point.

    I have another small issue though as follows:

    When I change the wp-admin path, I get an error message in Console “JQuery is not defined”, once I change it back to wp-admin the error is gone, any suggestions?

    Thank you once more.

    Hi,

    Are you getting this error when you’re logged in or after you log out?

    Try to switch on Hide My WP > Advanced > Late loading if you have a cache plugin and see if the error appears again and make sure the paths are changed in frontend.

    Also, check if you switched on Hide My WP > Tweaks > Change Paths For Logged Users if you want to change the paths while you’re logged in.

    This happens while logged in and viewing the wp-admin, the files producing the error are TinyMCE JS files.

    Your suggested solution doesn’t work sadly.

    While you’re in wp-admin, Hide My WP is not changing the paths so probably the theme or a plugin doesn’t work because wp-admin is customized.

    If the js error is not affecting the editor’s functionality, you can ignore it.
